Nietzsche and the Crisis in Philosophy




Part 2 of 3 Lectures:

Kierkegaard and the Crisis in Religion
Nietzsche and the Crisis in Philosophy
Sartre and the Crisis in Morality

Dr. Walter Kaufmann focuses on the contribution of Friedrich Nietzsche to the philosophical world, picturing him as a revolutionary heretic and the embodiment of the Socratic spirit. He traces in Nietzsche's works the craving for intellectual integrity, his break with Richard Wagner over the composer's anti-Semetic and anti-French sentiments, and ultimately, his madness, ascribed to having "burned himself out." 1960.
